Upsy Daisy Tea Party – Toy Review

In the Night Garden Dressy Upsy Daisy Tea Party.

I was recently contacted about reviewing some toys that have recently hit the market and one of them was the Upsy Daisy Tea Party. Now anyone with preschoolers will know that In The Night Garden is one of those kids programs that is addictive for the little ones! H has loads of Night Garden toys and absolutely loved this one.

When it arrived H wanted it out straight away, no surprise there!!! In the set was Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy, a head band for Upsy Daisy, 2 cups, saucers and spoons, and a tea pot. Igglepiggle’s blanket is removable and can be used as their picnic blanket too.

Now one thing that bugs me with kids toys is the amount of packaging, but this really impressed me! Both figures were secured into place using ribbon which could be cut without damaging the toys, and the other bits popped out with ease. Although lots of ties are used to keep the bits in place in the box, it took a minute to get this little lot out and for me that’s a major plus with a two year old yelling for the bits!

H was really impressed and has had this toy out loads ever since we got it. She loves to feed Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy, oh and me too! She is the typical kind of two year old who loves role play, be it in her kitchen or with her pushchair and doll, so this was right up her street and compliments the other food toys she has. The other good bit is that both figures are soft and cuddly so when H said she wanted this Igglepiggle to go to bed with rather than her other one, I had no hesitation in letting her.

Aimed at age 2 and over, at an RRP of £29.99 this is an ideal Christmas present idea, and I would have no hesitation in buying this for my own or for friends children. For kids who love the whole role play side of things, this is great and the fact it includes characters that our kids know and love just makes it even better!

    • Hi, this was brought out for the Christmas market last year and I have done a quick search online, you may be able to still get it from Argos, they are out of stock for home delivery but you could see if your local store has it. Failing that the only other place I can see them is on eBay, but there are quite a few on there from eBay shops selling them new! Hope you manage to find one!!
